House Tea Party leader signs up for ObamaCare

One of ObamaCare’s staunchest foes in Congress acknowledged that he has purchased insurance at HealthCare.gov.

“For the record, I am on ObamaCare. Yee-hah!” Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) said during a town-hall meeting last month.

“My wife complains about it all the time,” he said, according to the Clay Center Dispatch.

Another firebrand conservative, Sen. Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzGOP candidate scores upset win in Texas state Senate runoff McConnell tamps down any talk of Kavanaugh withdrawal Cornyn takes on O'Rourke over AR-15s MORE (R-Texas), admitted last week that he was planning to enroll in insurance through ObamaCare.

Cruz had previously been covered by his wife’s Goldman Sachs healthcare plan, though she lost her coverage after deciding to take a leave for absence for his newly announced presidential campaign.

Both Huelskamp and Cruz have voted more than 50 times to repeal the president’s healthcare law.

Huelskamp had previously tried to enroll himself and his family in insurance through the insurance exchange during the website meltdown in December 2013 but said he was rejected.

“Now, like millions of my fellow Americans, my family and I have been removed from a plan we liked and then been rejected by ObamaCare,” he said then.
